I'm experiencing this too with an Alfresco 2.2E, storing my webscripts in the classpath (in the webapp, as we're deploying using an AMP, but editing the files directly on a test server allows to test changes quickly without repackaging/redeploying the AMP). In 2.2E, you're not even forced to refresh webscripts' JS files, as they aren't pre-compiled, contrary to 3.x (for performance reasons) and FTL files.
Hmm, this is the first I've heard about 3.x precompiling JS files. Do you have more information about this? It seemed to start happening with the 3.1 release, and not with 3.0 and 3.0.1 .
